—Needs updating since site merge in December 2014—
A nice shiny new blog that was started in January 2010 to share my experience of becoming an airline pilot.
I have wanted to become a pilot for many years now and throughout those years I have looked all over the place for information on how to do it. I have found some great resources; anything from flight school websites to forums and to blogs. I also spoke to or emailed any pilot who’s details I could get my hands on. I have never seen a blog that details everything from the beginning and so I thought I would make it possible for people to find what I was looking for. I want people to know that anyone with enough determination and effort can achieve their dream of flying for the airlines. This blog will cover my flight training and eventually my entry into work with an airline and everything inbetween.
I have decided to train with Oxford Aviation Academy and will commence on 26th April 2010. I will be in AP313.
A special thanks to Bryn Thompson for allowing me to use one of his photos for the header of my blog.
